 Effect of lithium on fish development
Lithium chloride is a known teratogen which alters development in a variety of organisms including sea urchins, Xenopus (frogs), and Brachydanio rerio (Zebrafish) (Gilbert, 2003).
The purpose of this experiment is to study the effects of lithium teratogenesis on post-midblastular embryo to observe whether or not the inhibition of anterior development occurs along a gradient, with increasing concentrations of lithium chloride leading to incrementally more severe defects in anterior development.
Indications of the former hypothesis would consist of lithium teratogenesis leading to, for example, partial formation of an eye at one concentration and the complete absence of eye formation at a slightly higher concentration, then it may be possible that lithium teratogenesis affects development along a gradient.
